Since March, the WhichSchoolAdvisor.com team have been sharing videos of students and teachers singing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” as a message of hope and unity. Here, Sithumdi BJ, a student at Dubai Scholars Private School, sings the classic song in her native Sinhalese language.

Inspired by the young people of China and Italy who began sharing messages of hope as the Covid-19 pandemic took hold in their homelands, WhichSchoolAdvisor.com began sharing special versions of the song, “Somewhere Over the Rainbow“, by students across the world, who also wanted to raise their voices in hope, and solidarity…

Today is the turn of Sithumdi, a student at Dubai Scholars Private School to share her passion and talent for music. Sithumdi sings “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”, in her native Sinhalese language. Sithumdi is now part of a growing group of children and teachers who have recorded this song for our project.  Sithumdi, says she is “passionate about music and wishes to inspire her generation with melodies that promote peace and harmony”.  She joins Emily of Kings’ Al Barsha, Ms Suzanna Eggar of Fairgreen International School and Aya of Repton Abu Dhabi. Each have made their own beautiful interpretation of the song.

All over the world, children and young people have united under the message ‘Keep up the Fight’. For children in China, where the movement originated, the message is “Jiayou”.

Today, all around Italy, the words “andra tutto bene” (all will be well) now accompany beautiful rainbow drawings made by children to brighten their locked down neighbourhoods, and to give hope to anyone who sees them. We want to share the UAEs’ messages of light and hope too…

Jiayou. Andra tutto bene. Keep up the fight.

We would love to hear this popular song sung in your mother tongue. If your child would like to share their own version of the “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” song, please email editor@whichschooladvisor.com.

Please enjoy this moment of musical hope, positivity and worldwide connection from Sithumdi and all of the WhichSchoolAdvisor.com team.

Thank you Sithumdi, for your song…
